Title fight   

The purpose of Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 was to update Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  The civil rights act banned several forms of discrimination in employment but did not address or make mention of education.  Contrary to popular belief, the scope and purpose of Title IX had little to do with sports.  Women’s athletics was considered irrelevant within America’s educational institutions at the time.  

Lia Thomas, a transgender athlete, formerly known as Will Thomas, was recently shown winning an NCAA swimming competition in division 1 women’s swimming.  There were barely any cheers after Thomas had won, and many of the attendees held up signs that stated “Save Women’s Sports” in the Georgia Tech arena.  Many of them still remember Thomas competing as a male swimmer for the past three seasons for the University of Pennsylvania.    

Emma Weyant, a biological female; and one of the United States top female swimmers, she finished second behind Thomas in the 500 meters.  For most, myself included, believe that biologically Lia Thomas holds an unfair advantage over female athletes in the women’s category.  Thomas’s genetic make-up along with his physical stature gives him an overwhelming competitive edge over female athletes.  This explains how Thomas went from being ranked #462 as a male swimmer, to being ranked number one as a female swimmer.

The effects of puberty are significant, they give men a massive advantage in muscle growth, heart and lung capacity and greater bone density, among other things.   Even if men take female hormones later in life, they will continue to have a significant physical size and strength advantage over their female counterparts.   

Thomas, a mediocre swimmer at best in the male category is breaking women’s records and winning races by entire pool lengths in the women’s category.  To be fair, Thomas isn’t to blame; in large part it’s the NCAA’s capitulation and fear of the woke mob.  They’re spinelessness is making a mockery of women’s sports by allowing men to compete with women.  They are singlehandedly destroying the legitimacy of women’s athletics.  

Ironically, Title XII induced the flow of female athletes into organized sports within America’s institutions.  Up until then, female athletes were all but non-existent in college athletics. Just think how this will discourage our daughters and granddaughters from aspiring to compete in women’s athletics.  Imagine a world minus Jackie Joyner Kersee, Venus and Serena Williams, or Lindsey Vonn, to name a few.  This is the woke world where biological men compete with women in athletic competition. 

Women have now become the sacrificial lambs of wokeness in America.

Allowing genetically altered men to compete as women is no different than doping or any other form of cheating in athletics.  The nexus of Title IX was to create fairness and inclusion across the spectrum in schools throughout America, but the NCAA’s interpretation does exactly the opposite.

    These people have become so woke that they literally are moving backwards . They might as well just stand up and say women are useless and that only men can in fact be the best women ( if they can ever figure out what that is ) SMDH. So much for progressive thoughts .It is just maddening anymore -ENOUGH WITH THE WOKE BULLSHIT ALREADY!!

    As a former All-American track and field athlete, that was a member of 3 USA track teams, I think this is ludicrous. There have been women, born and raised as women, that have lost medals and titles because later, mandatory genetic testing showed that they were “too masculine” genetically speaking. This is a slap in the face to them and to all women athlete and women’s athletic programs. If this trend continues, it only makes sense that “women’s” sports teams, fueled by desires for titles and profitable programs will eventually have full rosters of transgender athletes that were born biologically male.

    This negates all of the ground gained by gender equity programs, this eliminates many of the opportunities for women, especially women from poor families, to ever obtain a college education. If this is something the NCAA, feel strongly about, they need to create new teams and divisions for transgendered athletes to compete amongst themselves. I’m all for people being whomever they want to be, I have no issues with trans people at all, but fair is fair and having biological males competing with women is not fair. It works fine for chess, speech and debate, probably curling or any other sport where physical strength is not a key factor for success over one’s opponents. For most athletics, it’s completely unfair.

    I know someone trained her whole life decided not to continue over this. Team USA was going to the Olympics was the plan. She is now a police officer. Just started but she would have been training. Great athlete.
